or it gets thrown out. they don't look at your skills or abilities and in massachusetts, that cannot happen anymore. we hope this becomes a bellwether with support from national -- and the naacp and national urban league. it makes no sense to disenfranchise thousands and millions of people twice. once you can't vote and then you can't work. if you cannot vote and cannot work, you are not a citizen. you can say you are born here, live here, have family here, but you do not have the right to vote in the right to work, you not have citizenship. the bad news is across the country, people are still saying if you have been in trouble, you can't vote and you can work. that paralyzes a whole generation of people. many of them who were involved in non-violet, personally- conflicting criminal activity selling drugs. we're not advocating drugs as a good thing, but why punish somebody more severely because be a rather than trying to treated. finally congressman john conyers has been a warrior for decades. think about what he has done and what he represents. there is crime in detroit, crime in chicago,

. basically up toward eastern massachusetts. that's where they're going to see heavy winds and rains tonight. for us, a front out to the west. going to clear things out. it's already very warm right now. but we've got a great weekend shaping up. take a look at the latest track as it moves away from the region. the 5:00 report in just a moment ago. category 1, barely with winds of 81. moving quickly off to the north and northeast, at 22 miles an hour. it's going to cross very close to eastern cape cod and eventually to nova scotia. you can see them beginning to shrink as it moves up north and northeast in our region. dryer conditions coming up. updates coming in. tim williams has the latest on any advisories which have just been lifted. >> they had issued tropical storm warnings. because the impact were impacting, of course, the delmarva. but now, as bob mentioned, as of 5:00, those warnings have been lifted. what you're seeing now we're seeing clear conditions, watches and watches and warnings, including tidal concerns. and wind conditions. winds are calming down a little bit. wuit means 12
of nantucket, massachusetts. right now you, as you mentioned, 110-mile-per-hour winds. for a hurricane, that's a pretty quick clip. we are watching this move rather rapidly. we expect by 3:00 this morning, it should be parallel to the outer banks. we don't expect it to make landfall. right now it's moving north. the latest look at the satellite shows a wobble to the east. we've had a wobble to the west. we're going to be keeping an eye on this. we don't expect necessarily there to be landfall per se. however, when you consider that hurricane-force winds extend out 70 miles from the center of earl and tropical-force winds 205 miles from the center, you don't have to have landfall to get the direction action. storm surge will be a factor. three to five feet above normal. that will happen at high tide. we can expect some coastal flooding. beach erosion a problem. rainfall, 4 to 6 inches generally in some areas and locally might be higher in the outer banks. tomorrow, moving up the eastern seaboard, running parallel to maryland, new jersey, long island. probably not a direct hit on long island.
and then up towards eastern massachusetts and rhode island, as well as connecticut, friday evening, then towards maine, and we're still getting a clip here for cape cod and the islands. then by saturday, it really should be making its way up to eastern canada. precip, we could see a couple of inches on top of what we saw for portions of eastern north carolina, and the heaviest of rain really for new england and eastern long island, but the good news is we've downgraded the storm, so obviously, this is not up to date, so we're down to a cat one, but the track is basically the same, just brushing eastern massachusetts. so we could still see a big hit from the hurricane across this region and we're going to have to monitor that, but the good news is the storm is weakening and it's moving quickly, you know, so we can just cross our fingers jenna. that's the best case scenario and we'll all have a fantastic labor day weekend once earl is out of here. jenna: that sounds perfect, that's the way we want to end the weather report. i know you've got to get back and check those hurricane repo
